ICICI Bank was originally promoted in 1994 by ICICI Limited, an Indian financial
institution, and was its wholly-owned subsidiary. ICICI's shareholding in ICICI Bank
was reduced to 46% through a public offering of shares in India in fiscal 1998, an
equity offering in the form of ADRs listed on the NYSE in fiscal 2000, ICICI Bank's
acquisition of Bank of Madura Limited in an all-stock amalgamation in fiscal 2001,
and secondary market sales by ICICI to institutional investors in fiscal 2001 and
fiscal 2002. ICICI was formed in 1955 at the initiative of the World Bank, the
Government of India and representatives of Indian industry. The principal objective
was to create a development financial institution for providing medium-term and
long-term project financing to Indian businesses. In the 1990s, ICICI transformed its
business from a development financial institution offering only project finance to a
diversified financial services group offering a wide variety of products and services,
both directly and through a number of subsidiaries and affiliates like ICICI Bank. In
1999, ICICI become the first Indian company and the first bank or financial
institution from non-Japan Asia to be listed on the NYSE.

After consideration of various corporate structuring alternatives in the context of

the emerging competitive scenario in the Indian banking industry, and the move
towards universal banking, the managements of ICICI and ICICI Bank formed the
view that the merger of ICICI with ICICI Bank would be the optimal strategic
alternative for both entities, and would create the optimal legal structure for the
ICICI group's universal banking strategy. The merger would enhance value for ICICI
shareholders through the merged entity's access to low-cost deposits, greater
opportunities for earning fee-based income and the ability to participate in the
payments system and provide transaction-banking services. The merger would
enhance value for ICICI Bank shareholders through a large capital base and scale of
operations, seamless access to ICICI's strong corporate relationships built up over
five decades, entry into new business segments, higher market share in various
business segments, particularly fee-based services, and access to the vast talent
pool of ICICI and its subsidiaries. In October 2001, the Boards of Directors of ICICI
and ICICI Bank approved the merger of ICICI and two of its wholly-owned retail
finance subsidiaries, ICICI Personal Financial Services Limited and ICICI Capital
Services Limited, with ICICI Bank. The merger was approved by shareholders of ICICI
and ICICI Bank in January 2002, by the High Court of Gujarat at Ahmedabad in
March 2002, and by the High Court of Judicature at Mumbai and the Reserve Bank
of India in April 2002. Consequent to the merger, the ICICI group's financing and
banking operations, both wholesale and retail, have been integrated in a single

ICICI Bank has formulated a Code of Business Conduct and Ethics for its directors
and employees.

I have a positive view on ICICI Bank, given its market-leading businesses across the
financial services spectrum. Moreover, I believe that the Bank is decisively
executing a credible strategy of consolidation that should result in an improved
deposit and loan mix and consequently in improved operating metrics over the
medium term.

The strategy involves maintaining strong capital adequacy in the current

environment, while building the necessary base for strong CASA mobilization, going
forward. This is to be achieved through a substantial branch expansion, without
diluting the current focus on stringent cost-control measures. The management has
indicated that cost rationalizations still in process to further bring down the
operating expenses. The Bank’s Capital Adequacy is also amongst the highest at
17.4%, with a substantial 13.1% Tier 1 capital.

I believe that the Bank’s substantial branch expansion and large Capital Adequacy,
especially on Tier 1, are a precursor to market share gains that will contribute to a
substantial Core business growth, though with a lag effect until the macro-
environment starts improving again (hence, potentially in 12-18 months). It is
focusing again on replacing wholesale funds with retail deposits in the international
subsidiaries as well. In the short term, while the Asset-quality deterioration is likely
to start plotting only after a few quarters, the increased focus on Treasury as a
profit-centre, as well as the continued focus on cost controls should provide some
support to the Bank’s P/L account.
